$2,750 for a Complete Invisalign Treatment ($5,500 Value)
Invisalign straightens teeth with a series of clear, removable, custom aligners. The process begins at the dentist’s office, where, during an initial exam, the doctor snaps an x-ray and takes digital impressions of the upper and lower teeth using the Itero Intraoral Digital Scanner. The Itero digitally scans the patient's teeth and then using an Invisalign simulator program, displays an animated image of what teeth might look like after the treatment is complete. In the Invisalign lab, technicians craft a set of up to 48 transparent aligners made to the patient’s exact specifications. Patients wear the removable aligners for 6–18 months, changing the aligners every two weeks and only removing them while eating, brushing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
Throughout the treatment, patients return to the dentist's office for routine checkups to ensure teeth continue to shift into their proper places. Read the Invisalign FAQs here.
Lake Pointe Family Dentistry
The staff members at Lake Pointe Family Dentistry believe that oral health care should be luxurious, not daunting. So, they've tucked their treatment rooms inside a spa and disguised appointments as indulgent getaways. The office's design seems to have borrowed its aesthetic from a Mediterranean temple, with its columns and flowing drapery in the lobby and crisp white and royal-blue color scheme.
Inside the treatment rooms, clients repose on massaging dental chairs while receiving a warm neck wrap and soothing eye pillows. They might also find their hands swaddled in a paraffin-wax treatment that encourages clients to stop hiding their hands under sock puppets.
It’s an experience completely unlike the ones you might find at a traditional dentist office, but Lake Pointe Family Dentistry’s focus is still on maintaining and beautifying smiles. Dr. Naureen Qazi works with her dental assistants to address tooth decay and a variety of restorative procedures, including crown placements, fillings, and implants. The Invisalign-certified dentist also oversees cosmetic strategies such as veneers and whitening.
